And we’re back!

Done! Finally, finally done. No more school, at least until January.

The last weekend of 803 was a mess. Most of the work we had to do was of the small group variety, and because of the Thanksgiving holiday, everyone – including me – drug their feet and waited until the very last minute. So last weekend was a flurry of hurried writing, snarking back and forth at each other, and general ass-covering, however I think we pulled it all together well and ended up with one of the better presentations in the class on how the role of librarianship will change with a fully digital library. I know, I know – exciting stuff, right? Anyway, it’s all done now, so I get to sit back and recover for the next few weeks before the next batch of classes begins.

To help manage the stress, I’ve been reading, so I have a TON of reviews to work on for y’all. Erik Larson’s follow-up to the absolutely sublime kick-yourself-if-you-haven’t-already-read-this Devil in the White City, Michael Connelly’s new entry in the Harry Bosch detective series, the latest Bishop and Weiss mystery from Andrew Klavan, and maybe even a fantasy novel or two, because I haven’t read any decent fantasy in what seems like forever.

It’s good to be back.

    Just like in a real library!

  2. Congrats on completing your 1st semester! The weekend-intensive format makes time mgmt tricky, to be sure….

    Looking forward to some book talk from you in the next few weeks.

  3. Sorry, again, that I wasn’t there for the presentation. Glad to hear it went well. I hope your grade reflected such success.
